The Bacteroides-1 RNA motif is a conserved RNA structure identified in bacteria within the genus Bacteroides.[1] The RNAs are typically found downstream of (in the possible 3′ UTRs) of genes that participate in the synthesis of exopolysaccharides of unknown types. It is possible that Bacteroides-1 RNAs regulate the upstream genes, but since this mode of regulation is unusual in bacteria, it is more likely that the structure functions as a non-coding RNA.
